The Faithful


Preferred Archetype: Lathander the Morninglord is the default god who has domains of Light and Healing. Think of the Cleric (and Paladin classes) as very crypto-Christian. God is remote and mostly make promises of eternal life after death for the pure and damnation for the evil and wicked. Undead are deeply hated by the Church of Lathander (If you want to make your own God to worship think of a title like The Hanged God, Lady of Heaven, or The Holy of Holies) Also you could be part of an order dedicated to a particular saint of soldiers(War) Sailors (Tempest) or a hermit order (Nature)
Discouraged Archetypes: Arcana, Trickery, Death, and Knowledge have class features that don’t really feel like a worshiper of a medieval quasi-christo like entity
